Our Ingredients

Good food comes from good produce – and at Bocca Bona we have sourced the best authentic produce Italy has to offer.

From our pizza base to our toppings and oils, all are specially selected with love.

Dough

Our pizza dough is made from Stoneground flour, which means it has been milled between 2 stones. The whole grain goes in, and the whole grain comes out, meaning none of the nutrients are lost.  

The dough is proofed for 48 hours so it is completely aerated, producing a light, crisp pizza base.  And it tastes great!

Base

We top our bases with ‘Tomato Sugo’ made in-house using sweet, juicy San Marzano tomatoes.  These deep-red, plum tomatoes, grown at the base of Mount Vesuvius, are cooked slowly for several hours with onion and extra Virgin olive oil to bring out their intense flavour and give you an authentic Italian taste every time.

Our house cheese, Fior Di Latte, comes from Southern Italy and is made from cow’s milk. It is mild and creamy like mozzarella but is completely vegetarian.  And it melts like a dream, making it utterly delectable.

Our other cheeses are almost like a food journey of Italy – Asiago is a hard cheese which we buy from its place of origin, the Alpine pastures of Veneto; Buffalo Mozzarella and Scamorza (smoked cheese) from the gastronomically rich area of Campania (Campania means ‘happy countryside’ – who wouldn’t want to eat from there?); rich Gorgonzola from the foot of the Alps in Piemonte, and Pecorino Romano, a hard, salty cheese from Rome.  Also from Campania, is our Buffalo Mozzarella, made from the milk of Italian Water Buffalo.

Bocca Bona uses Gran Moravia, which is made in the Moravia Region of the Czech Republic – a vegetarian, long-aged artisan cheese produced by the oldest Italian dairy company and part of an eco-sustainable food growing project. Now that’s cool. 

And let’s not forget our vegan cheese (Vegan? Cheese? Absolutely!) Our 100% vegan mozzarella-style cheese tastes divine.

Toppings

Our selection of carne (meat) is another culinary delight.  

Prosciutto Crudo di San Daniele is one the most prestigious varieties of Prosciutto in Italy; made from only high-quality pork and sea salt, it is simple, additive-free and delicious.  Prosciutto Cotto is a ‘cooked’ type of Prosciutto.

Coppa is another (absolutely sumptuous) salt-cured pork cold cut.

Nduja, a spreadable pork from Calabria, and Pancetta, made from pork belly, both bring strong flavour and spice.  

Seasoned pork fans will love our Porchetta, whilst our artisan Salsiccia will delight sausage enthusiasts.

Sopressa Veneta is an aged salami from the plains of Veneto, produced in the traditional style with pork, lard, salt, pepper, spices and garlic to enhance the flavour.

Fresh Italian seasonal vegetables, including Datterini Cherry Tomatoes, Friarelli Broccoli, Round Aubergine and Wild Porcini Mushrooms, arrive at our doors within days of being picked from sun-soaked regions of Italy.

Cooking

At Bocca Bona, everything we make is produced in our wood-fired oven (except for a few items in our starter menu that are coated in breadcrumbs and therefor need to be fried to retain crispness).

However, you won’t find any chips (although our diced roast potatoes come highly recommended).  

Bocca Bona brings the very best pizza ingredients from Italy to your home, all for the love of good food.
